Some Beach Cover Ups


Here are a few varieties of caftans, or beach cover ups I made this year...and some new owners of them! If you want to look at my Etsy page  please click on "Etsy"

Here is one of my work tables. I've got some great new cotton lace! Will make something with that chartruese green lace this year.

Stagg is showing off the "chem trails" caftan.

You can even make these New York City freindly :)

Button Box Reverie


“Daydream transports the dreamer outside the immediate world to a world that bears the mark of infinity.” Gaston Bachelard A button box brings memories of grandmas or moms button and sewing kits. Playing with variety of oddball buttons always seeing something new. Rainy day, cottage, behind the couch geography on a carpet or tiled floor. Metal candy boxes holding all the colours and dreams...soldiers, fairies, pattern making and infinite feelings of no time.

I've got an Etsy page...not sure how I feel about it yet. I haven't really even advertised it. Just thinking out loud...
